LineageOS based on Android 10, get updated to 17.1 version


LineageOS is perhaps the most popular custom ROM in development, and the project is proud to bring new Android versions to unsupported phones.

However, Lineage was a little late to carry out an Android-based version 10 — last year’s Pie-based ROM was available by this time. Fortunately, the next major LineageOS edition appears to be just around the corner.

While inofficial Lineage ROMs based on Android 10 have been available for a long time, a completed update for any officially compatible devices has yet to be released for the program. This could change shortly, as the development server for the project has been modified to list all the devices that will receive nightly LineageOS 17.1 builds (based on Android 10).

Currently, the list includes the Fairphone 2, the first Moto Z, another much-loved HTC One M8 and an LG G3/V20 shit-ton model. The bolded versions below are entirely new to LineageOS, while the remainder are already on LineageOS 16 Pie.

Surprisingly, LineageOS 16 (Pie) builds above-mentioned devices have already been disabled, and they will not get any more patches until the Android 10 ROM is available.Lineage usually retains all branches for at least some phones after a big new OS update has been released (for example, Nexus 6 had Oreo and Pie ROMs available until later this year), but that’s not obviously the case here.

In the coming months more apps are likely to be available to this list so check back soon.
